Give your furry some extra love today!

Today is National Love Your Pet Day!  So, give your furry family member or members some extra TLC and extra treats today :)

I have cats and rabbits, but decided to break into a new stamp set I've been wanting to use.  Isn't this little kitty cute?  I made the background using some smaller stamps, randomly stamping them all over.  I tried to color the kitty to look like my Tortie, Emmie (she's the kitty on my blog title picture!)  She's such a little stinker, but I totally love her. 




I adore all of my furries and couldn't imagine our home and life without them!  So, I'll be giving them each more head rubs and treats today!  If you have furries, please give them a head rub for me too!  Have a wonderful day and thanks for looking!

Red, red wine....

Today is National Drink Wine Day!  I'm all for it.  I love red wine, so I'll be celebrating tonight! 

I broke out a stamp set that I've had forever and have never used.  I thought it would be a good one to celebrate the day.


If you celebrate today, please drink responsibly and have a great time!  Cheers!

Flowers in Winter

Today's Sisters In Stamping theme is "Beat The Winter Blues Flower Project".  Winter is a really hard time to be cheerful and this winter has been a tough one on my friends and family with the deaths of so many loved ones.  So, I know I was supposed to make a flower project to beat the winter blues, but I was in a friendly sharing in the blues mood since just getting news of another passing.  To all of you going through a tough time, please know you are not alone.

I decided to make a card and decorate a small tissue box.  I used the Blooms and Bliss Designer Series Paper for both. 
 I built the flowers and leaves on this card using some dies from the Flower Fair Framelits.    The larger petal flower was die cut from Rich Razzleberry, the inner flower die cut from the DSP, and the leaves from Mint Macaron.  I used my bone folder to curl the larger petals and then adhered the inner flower.  I added some mini Pearl Basic Jewels in the insde of each flower and around the framed oval piece of Blushing Bride.  The sentiment is from the Thoughts & Prayers set.
 I built the tissue flower using the Blossom Builder punch.  The flower is made using Sweet Sugarplum cardstock and the leaves punched out from Mint Macaron cardstock.  I also wrapped a piece of Sweet Sugarplum ribbon around the top of the tissue box.

I'm sure the Sisters In Stamping have done fabulous flower projects.  Check them out here.

 Wishing you all a beautiful day and a bloomin' wonderful weekend!  Thanks for looking.

National Bubble Wrap Day!

Who knew? 

So, grab a piece of bubble wrap and give in to your guilty pleasure of popping those little bubbles :)



I created this card to celebrate the day.  I wrapped a piece of bubble wrap around a large, clear stamping block and taped the ends down.  I then inked up the bubble wrap using Dapper Denim ink and stamped on the background piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I then stamped my sentiment, cut it and the larger scalloped circle using my framelit dies, added some matching embellishments, and adhered.  It was very easy and a lot of fun.  I like the texture the bubble wrap gives the background.

Anyway, thanks for looking and have a bubblelicious day!
